    We are having a little boy and we are naming him after his dad so his name will be Joe. Its an old fashioned thing to do and we were struggling to agree on names and my oh said oh lets just call him Joe and it was kind of a lightbulb moment lol! We love it I love saying Big Joe & Little Joe and my Joe's but people are reallllllly annoying me..i've been told that I can't call him that because its lazy, its lame and even pathetic!! I'm just so annoyed to be honest feel like crying just had enough of everyone putting it down :(

    You should name your child with whatever name you are happy with, it is entirely your decision and nobody should say anything negative about the name as its not their decision or their business to do so!

    Keep the name and try not to let anybody put you off it xxx

    If that's what you want do it. We had a lightbulb moment with Elliot and instantly we were decided. Go with your instincts I think its cute.

    I think it's lovely to name your son after his dad! It's done so rarely now, although a lot of people still take names from grandparents/great grandparents etc., which is just the same. Nothing lazy about it. Anyhow, it's your choice, don't let anyone make you feel upset about it.

    My OH is called Leonard Andrew, known as Len. My DS1 is called Leonard Andrew John, known as Leo. I think it is sweet! His uncle calls them Lenny and little Lenny, which is nice apart from the fact I hate 'Lenny'!

    I love the idea of naming after babies dad, my dad was named after his dad, and I'm going to use my oh's name as the middle name at least for our baby xxx

    I've stopped telling people because they're so mean! Don't listen, there's nothing wrong in it!

    My DH is called Richard and I like Richie for a little boy, hubs doesn't though!

    Who is having this baby... You or them? Ignore them! You andd your OH call your son whatever you want!

    People don't like some of the names we have planned and sometimes take a dig but don't let it get to you. I personally think calling your son after your OH is so cute! I want to name my baby (if a boy) Matthew after his dad, but he doesn't like the idea so we're playing with other names and having Matthew as the middle name!

    Ignore them, your baby, your choice! Xxx

    Wtf is wrong with people? When you introduce a new baby to someone, no one says anything about the name then so why do they think it's okay to say it before they're born?!
    This is one of the main reasons my husband and I are not telling anyone what name we've chosen for our little girl. We shouldn't have to keep it a secret, but we love the name so much, I'd hate to find myself going off it if people were to start saying mean things about it.
